Hello, shalom and welcome to another chock-full issue of Laura's Links.
Actually, I've recently learned it is more accurately choke-filled (originally meaning stuffed to the point of choking, gah). And for real and not for joking, the internet did not disappoint this week, and some of these links are truly barf-tastic so choke-filled is totally apropos. Bon appetit, mes amis!
It was also another busy week for the great prophet Mark Steyn, PBUH (Pocket squares Be Upon Him) who delighted fans around the world with a fantastic live Clubland Q&A (replay can be found here) answering a veritable cornucopia of questions from Mark Steyn Club members around the world. He also fearlessly took on the Wokestapo retake massacre of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" in one of his regular spots with Tucker Carlson.
If you missed Mark's concise explanation on another spot with Tucker Carlson regarding why young Americans are gravitating to socialism, do check it out. It's as good a description as I've ever heard, so don't miss it. Not that I'm biased in any way, shape or form, or think Mark Steyn is an intellectual force of nature in spiffy bespoke suits or anything. I'm so totally and completely neutral on this of course.
*laughs a little in-house Jewish mother Zionist laugh, imagining anyone being neutral on Mark Steyn and how insanely ridiculous a premise that is, ha ha*
Anyway, back to business. Let's take a good look at some of the news stories, human foibles and groan-o-rama items that were circulating around The Interwebzzz this week.
OMG Paul Ryan, how can we miss you if you just won't leave? You are useless. Worse than useless. This is pathetic. Hey Speaker Ryan, there's a call for you in the lobby on the 1990s Poseur Conservatives Start a Think Tank or News Aggregating Web Site Courtesy Phone. As well, why is there a clip of the light towers representing the Twin Towers in the video clip? When I see that, I think "losers", and "victims of terror" not "great ideas" or innovation. OK I'll stop now. Actually I won't because hello??? The logo-the Statue of Liberty's crown? As my buddy Kathy Shaidle always says: crappy poetry does not make a good immigration policy".
